Did everyone hear about the fiasco that happened on voting day on Oahu? Nineteen precincts ran out of ballots and a lot of people had to wait past 8 p.m. to get one and vote. Delivery in that traffic must have been horrendous.
On top of that, did you hear about the people who went to the wrong polling place because they weren't notified that their precinct had been changed and that there was a new map made? No notification? What's going on over there?
The Big Island was good during the primary compared to that.
So, it's back to the drawing board for us. We must switch to vote by mail or absentee ballots - whatever you prefer. It amounts to the same thing.
Let me remind you: No need to even think about where your precinct is, no need to drive there and stand in line to get your ballot, no need to stand in another line waiting for a booth to open, no need to stand in line again for your turn at the machine to record your ballot, no need to walk back to your car if you remembered where you had parked it. Oh, and now you can drive to wherever it was you wanted to be in the first place.
Mo betta vote by mail, yeah?
